This was an amazing story and I fell in love with Oliver and Jaime and their full of Feelz relationship! ...If you have not ever had the privilege of reading a book by CC this is the perfect book to start. Those of us who are Cardeno C fans will love this story and the connection created between Jaime and Oliver. ...This wasn’t an insta-love story but one that was semi-realistic (maybe more than that, if people hire escorts to teach them how to be better at sex) and allows the reader to believe in happily-ever after for ordinary people!

Wonderful heartfelt story ... Once I started I couldn't stop. It never fails to amaze me how much depth, feeling and emotion Cardeno C. packs into a story. The characters are always likeable and easy to connect with, the stories flow and while there are issues to muddle through, they aren't filled with an overwhelming amount of angst. ...I loved the deep meaningful conversations smattered throughout the book... Cardeno C. doesn't just tell you what the characters are feeling, you experience it along with them...Lots of love here in many forms, and when you turn the last page you feel good and want to go back and start all over again.

Swept Away By Romance

So if you're having a crappy day (or even if you're not) and you need a fast fluff injection, I recommend this novella.
